  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2014, Patek Philippe released their annual calendar chronograph, reference 5960 in stainless steel with a matching bracelet. This was a rare move for the company, as Patek Philippe usually produces models cased in precious metals, especially when it comes to their more complicated timepieces.

    The present reference 5960, now cased in steel, gives the watch a fresh, young, yet still elegant appeal. The updated colors on the subsidiary dial further gives the watch a face lift, which is a wonderful update on Patek Philippe's already very popular and very first automatic chronograph wristwatch.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
